I've only listened to 4 or 5 episodes of MFM, but I enjoyed them so I thought I'd listen to this book. It wasn't what I wasn't expecting (more of the podcast, I guess?), but their chemistry and humor is there, and there's a lot of vulnerability and insight into why they started the show.

I am addicted to true crime. I haven't listened to podcasts in a couple of years; since I discovered the joy of audiobooks. I may have to take a detour back to listen to the My Favorite Murder podcast again. Kilgriff & Hardstark are fun to listen to in this book of stories from their own lives.
An enjoyable listen for lunchtime #audiostitch sessions.
Second time ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
As a fan of the podcast, this was great. It‘s a quick, funny read filled with new stories and additional info about some of the things Karen and Georgia have mentioned on the podcast.
Ironically, I read this while staying in a forest 👀
I promised to read more for myself & less for work during wfh downtime. (Those work/life boundaries are tougher to enforce!) I like memoir & this fits the bill. This book made me want to journal some of my own experiences around coming of age & sexuality in general. Recommended by a former bookstore coworker, it's been sitting on my TBR for too long.
I‘m not someone who has an interest in true crime, but I am someone who likes podcasts that are hosted by smart and funny women. I really enjoyed this book, which covers how Karen and Georgia met, their childhoods and young adult years, while still retaining all the humor and vulnerability they are known for in their podcast. I also really appreciate their openness about past struggles with drugs and alcohol and their strong support of therapy.
Still not doing great but plodding onwards pals. Illness in the family and having to keep stuff running is a bit of a challenge. It‘s weird being 24 and feeling like too much of a child to look after people well, but also knowing some 24 year olds have kids and houses and keep families going permanently! I guess this will be one of my ‘growing up‘ moments. Grateful for Karen and Georgia‘s book, it feels like talking with old friends.
I‘m being nice with ⭐️⭐️. Okay, when the title is SSDGM, and it‘s a ‘how-to guide‘ by the people who have probably the most popular true crime podcast out there, you expect ... something true crime-ish? Maybe that‘s unreasonable. This was a memoir. And it had funny tales, but it wasn‘t what I was expecting. Maybe the first and last chapter qualified, but by the end, I was skimming. I take one thing from this: f*ck politeness. It wasn‘t for me.
Most Murderinos will already be at least somewhat familiar with many of the stories recounted in Stay Sexy And Don‘t Get Murdered, but Kilgariff and Hardstark offer more nuanced and detailed insights than they might off-the-cuff in a podcast recording. Their radical vulnerability is very impressive. Full review: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/stay-sexy-and-dont-get-murdered-karen-kilgar... #SSDGM #MFM #TrueCrime #Murderino
I am that kid that calls for everything. Mom Skyped with me to walk me through making a cake the other day. It‘s increased ever since I bought a house. I‘m surprised I can function on my own. #currentlyreading
Not much to post lately, still reading this beauty for book club.
I was so excited for this book and it did not disappoint! Loved learning more about My favourite podcasters....a must read for murderinos!
1)tagged book and The Tattooist of Auschwitz
2) hmmm, don't think I have one
3) Horizon Books in Traverse City MI
4) Harry Potter (all), Little House on the Prairie (all)
5) Harry Potter?
6) lol, too many 😂
I tried to borrow this one earlier today and it wouldn‘t load so I returned it and got ‘The Witches‘. It seems I‘m able to load it and play it now so up next.
I‘ve never listened to the podcast (I‘m not a podcast person 🤷🏻♀️) . I‘ve read and heard mixed things about this one.
We shall see.

Playing catch up on prompts so this one is a two-fer. The #jealous quote is from this book tagged as “The Definitive How-To #Guide” (it‘s on my TBR).
“...if you‘re one of those women who says that you‘ve only had guy friends because you‘re so pretty all women are jealous of you, put this book down and go to therapy immediately. Not only will this chapter confuse you, but you are lying to yourself in a terrible way.”
A humorous look at how the two podcasters got their start. 4.5⭐️
This is the only book I‘ve been able to get through so far this month. Life is so stressful with everything going on. Hope everyone makes smart decisions, stays safe, and keeps their families safe out there ❤️
Tonight‘s #bathnbook has been renamed to #bathnpodcast. My allergies hit hard today and unfortunately has resulted in one of my eyes being almost completely swollen shut. When it‘s not closed, it‘s itchy red and weepy which matches my drippy nose. So I‘m resting my eyes and listening to podcasts. I still can‘t focus on an audiobook to save my life but podcasts work as long as I don‘t fall asleep.
I am loving this book, but I knew I would! 😁 I'm so glad I got it for Christmas!!! I hope someday soon I can go to a live show! 😍
Starting the long weekend off right and I don‘t plan on leaving the house until at least Sunday!
Snagged this book a while ago on a Kindle daily deal and I‘m excited to finally read it.
Also on the docket this weekend- start posting my reviews for what I‘ve read so far for #NewYearWhoDis.
"We barely get any time on this planet. Do not spend it pleasing other people. Fuck politeness. Live life exactly how you want to live it so you can love the life you make for yourself." - Karen Kilgariff
"I tend to think too much and worry a lot, but reading takes me into a totally different world where there‘s no room for my own bullshit." - Georgia Hardstark
@LeahBergen - did you receive your book swap packages from me (via Amazon). I wanted to make sure they arrived.
I don‘t listen to the My Favorite Murder podcast and I do not enjoy true crime, so I was not really the target audience for this book. Like most co-written books full of essays and lists, especially ones trying to be funny, some of them were better than others.
I think I would have enjoyed this more if I had ever heard the podcast. I was expecting more serial killer stories. They had some good advice, but as I am not a fan of them before this their personal stories did not resonate.
Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark, hosts of the wildly popular My Favorite Murder podcast, share personal stories about what led up to the podcast and how it's affected their lives.
Part laugh-out-loud funny, part fist-pumping "heck yeah!", but mostly just two people talking about their experiences in therapy. I enjoyed their perspectives on victim-blaming and Georgia's love of Ray Bradbury, but it wasn't very engaging to me overall.
Audiocooking. I now will forever associate the voice of Karen Kilgariff with the smell of fresh ginger. Homemade curry paste in the works to make some yellow curry soup with black rice once I acquire some black rice. Also featured: my squash stash.

Well, I got in about ten minutes of listening before my ten-year-old said, "Sorry for interrupting you, Mom. I just love talking to you." And suddenly I couldn't enjoy my audiobook. But I did manage to get a photo of the beautiful persimmons I plan to devour during my reading time this weekend.

All you had to do was pull a book from the shelf and open it and suddenly the darkness was not so dark anymore 📖🎃
#108 of my year. Haven‘t heard too much about this one, I‘m looking forward to reading it!
This book was AMAZING! It was funny, quirky, and an all around great read. There were so many relatable things. It made me realize it's okay to be who I am.
As a long-time Murderino, I very much enjoyed this book. It won't be for everyone. I have made some great friends through the community and the podcast has helped a lot of women learn how to stand up for themselves. And learn that we aren't alone in our weirdness. Also pictured: obligatory cat.
Spotted yesterday in Portland, Maine! ❤️📚✨🍂
